The Thermals: Desperate Ground

04/23/2013 | Rough Trade | | Album Review
Red and Black marble Coloured 180 Gram Vinyl with download. Only available from Saddle Creek in America and Rough Trade in the UK. 'Desperate Ground', The Thermals' newest LP and debut for Saddle Creek, was produced by John Agnello (Dinosaur Jr, Sonic Youth) in Hoboken, NJ. Agnello and The Thermals completed the record and evacuated the studio just hours before Hurricane Sandy ravaged New Jersey, a fate quite fitting when you consider the product. 'Desperate Ground' is a true scrappy and scratchy return-to-form for The Thermals, with all the raw power and unhinged adolescent energy that made their early LP's so insanely enjoyable.
